Question:

My teacher gave me feedback on my paper and told me that this sentence is incorrect but I can't understand why. Here is the first half of the sentence that he marked as incorrect. In the story Good Country People written by flannery o'Connor

For this sentence, since you are stating the name of the book, we need to use quotation marks and follow the "protocol" for them. By protocol, I mean use a comma before the quotation marks. Also, peoples names should be capitalized. The beginning of your sentence would look like this: In the story, "Good Country People" written by Flannery O'Connor.

Basic Math

Question:

I am taking a math class this semester but have forgotten some basic math that is needed in order to complete some of the problems. Here is something I am needing help with: x + 8 = 12 I remember learning this at one point, but I cannot remember how to do it.

Nicole T.

For this equation, you are solving for x. That basically means that we want to know what number plus 8 = 12. You may be able to do this in your head, but I want to show you how you would go about solving it in case the numbers were bigger. x + 8 = 12 In order to solve for x, we need to get x "by itself" meaning that we want it secluded to one side - kind of like the 12 is! In order to do that, we would need to get rid of the 8 which would mean that we subtract it, however, what you do to one side you must do to the other. x + 8 = 12 - 8 - 8 x = 4 And that is our answer!

Question:

My English teacher gave us an assignment to define what a thesis and conclusion are. I have an idea of what each of them are, but I don't know exactly how to describe them. When I write a paper, I don't think about the thesis or conclusion. I just write until I'm done.

Nicole T.

I like to think of the thesis as the beginning of a paper. Not the introduction telling what your paper contains, but the beginning - something to grasp the attention of your readers. The conclusion is basically a sum of your paper. I like to read over my paper before writing it so that I can be sure that it contains a true summery of the content that was in my paper.
